    NP National certification

    Does anyone out there know of a way to get a national certification without a Master's degree.  I have been an NP for 20 yrs.  I have an AS degree in Nursing and a certificate as a WHCNP.  I was working a BS and had health issues and had to drop out.  I recently was offered a fantastic job with a large health care agency but they require a National Certification.  I was not aware that we are not allowed to take the test without a Masters Degree now.  Is there anyway to get grandfathered in?

    I believe that if you did not get or maintain national certification prior to 2005, you MUST have a Masters to take the WHNP certification exam. I personally don't know of anyway around this; I am a WHNP with Nursing Diploma/NP certificate and have have been certified since 1996, way before all of this started. Good Luck!!

    Today it is a requirement to practice, you must be certified. ANCC has a set of review books to help with tht study and take the exam, it's not that bad. Good luck with your future plans!

    Actually there are several states where you do not have to be certified to practice as an NP.  The only thing is that these states do not allow NP's to prescribe unless they are certified.  I only know this from a webinar by Fitzgerald that I listened to.

    Hi Mary !

    Any luck  in acquiring national certification without a Master's degree? I too have been a NP in California for over 20 years and thought that I would be able to be Grandfathered in.
